Aguirre blasts groups giving refuge to witnesses to 3 teen slay cases

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II has accused groups holding witnesses in the deaths of three youths of barring the resolution of these cases.

Aguirre has expressed dismay that these groups have refused to let the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to talk to the witnesses.

“Nagtataka lang ako sa mga iyan kung bakit ayaw nila,” he said on Tuesday (September 12).

“Parang sila mismo ang nagpipigil para ma-solve ang kaso,” Aguirre lamented.

After being taken by Sen. Risa Hontiveros, Caloocan Bishop Pablo David has taken custody of five witnesses in the death of 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos.

While, Rise UP for Life and for Rights has taxi driver Tomas Bagcal who is a witness in the death of 19-year-old University of the Philippines (UP) student Carl Angelo Arnaiz.

The 14-year-old companion of Arnaiz, Reynaldo de Guzman also turned up dead.
